The Civil Rights Movement
A living history course concentrating on the years between 1954-1968, students will march in the footsteps of activists, dialogue with Civil Rights leaders, and visit museums, monuments, and churches. Students will be immersed in the current and past culture of social change.
The Civil Rights movement is alive today. By connecting with past organizers and sites, students will be inspired to engage in community action.
The course will culminate with a 14-day study tour that will follow the path of the Freedom Riders and travel to southern destinations that honor the march for freedom.
Mandatory travel from May 10-24, 2018.
The class will meet 3-4 times during the Spring semester, dates and times to be determined.
